Existing EK FC Water Blocks Compatible With GeForce GTX 760

EK Water Blocks, Ljubljana based premium water cooling gear manufacturer, is pleased to announce that the existing EK-FC series water blocks are compatible with the majority of NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 based graphics card officially launched yesterday. Because the GeForce GTX 760 is based on a GK104 GPU, the very same GPU used on the GeForce GTX 680, -670 and 660 Ti graphics cards majority of graphics card manufactured have simply re-used it's existing - either the GTX 670 or GTX 680 - circuit board design. The reference design graphics cards are as well based on the older GeForce GTX 670 reference design circuit board (NVA-P2004).

As a result a lot of these graphics cards can be used with either the EK-FC670 GTX or EK-FC680 GTX series water blocks. In order to simplify the search for suitable and compatible water block EK has added more than 20 different GeForce GTX 760 graphics cards from various manufacturers to EK Cooling Configurator database and compatible graphics cards are being added to the list on daily basis.

Well you wouldn't want to start water cooling with the most expensive card out there, would you?

So do they even change the naming on the block, or does your new 760 get a cool 670/680 name on it still?

The 760 is one beastly mid-range card, and thanks to the short PCB it makes it a perfect fit for a watercooled mITX build.

I don't understand. Yes. maybe you could get 770 performance but at what price?

I suppose if you're upgrading and reusing the block, you might buy this card for water cooling ...

Yep, I'd say the GTX760 isn't really a mid-range card, but rather the bottom of the high-end.

IMO, Anything based on GK110/GK104 is high-end, anything based on GK106 is mid-range, and anything GK107 or lower is low-end.

Haha, they're both high end. It's a midrange gpu now. Time to evolve or get in my gas tank!
